Daisy Sheldon creates beautiful, personalised, embroidered wedding veils using a traditional Cornely machine. Daisy ships her sublime veils all over the UK and world.
Devotedly handcrafted in England, Daisy Sheldon’s unique technique preserves the rare and fading traditional Cornely embroidery that originated in France, the most romantic country on earth, in the 1920s.
Embroidered by hand with diligent skill and mastery, preserving the beauty and intricacy that is lost in modern digital embroidery, no two veils are the same. Choose from one of Daisy’s sustainable, embroidered wedding veil collections, or have her create a bespoke, personalised veil for you.
This isn’t just a wedding veil, this is a luxurious artisanal extension of you – your personality, your style, your love story. Shapes, symbols, art, words – they can all be delicately translated into Daisy’s exquisite, detailed embroidery, bringing special meaning to you and your loved one on your wedding day and creating an exquisite piece of art and precious heirloom to share with future generations.
Daisy’s veil collections are feminine and romantic and take inspiration from celestial heavens to classic British countryside. Every veil in each collection is fully customisable.
If you would prefer an entirely unique and bespoke veil, perhaps featuring cherished symbols and personal detail, Daisy can create this too. You will have the opportunity to specify each and every detail of the veil you envisage.
Whether you’ve already purchased a veil or have a treasured family heirloom veil that’s been passed down to you through the generations, you can add a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ with a personalised touch, lovingly embroidered by hand to create a truly unique, wearable art piece.
No one does veils quite like this.
Where are you based?
I am based in Somerset in the UK, but work with brides from all over the world; from the US to Australia!
How long does the process take?
Timeframes vary depending on whether it is peak bridal season and also the style of veil you are having, including the amount of embroidery, but generally the process takes around 4- 12 weeks. But tighter timeframes can be worked to if necessary.
I already have a wedding veil, can you embroider some personalised embroidery onto it?
Yes! If you have already purchased a veil or have an heirloom veil that has been passed down to you and would like to add some personalised touches, Daisy offers a bespoke embroidery service to embroider existing wedding veils. Whether this is a monogram, script or any other ideas you have, please get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.
Can you tell me more about the process or ordering?
The creative process involves discussing exactly what you would like and once we have established the kind of veil you are looking for you will receive a quote. If you are happy with the quote, then a 50% deposit to secure your space is required and then an indication of timescales will be given. Your veil design will be hand drawn and then digitised and you will be sent the design and at this stage, you may make amendments if necessary. Once the design is exactly as you would like it, the making process for your bespoke veil can start. When your veil is finished, the final 50% payment will be due on completion and on receipt of this, your veil will be sent to your desired address.
How much does a veil cost?
Price depends on the type of veil you are having – whether this is a collection veil or bespoke design, the veil length and the amount of embroidery. Veils usually cost between £400 - £2000. If you have a particular budget set aside, it is also possible to work to your individual requirements and create your perfect veil, tailored to your budget.
